How Much a Bathroom Renovation will Cost in New Zealand

This pandemic season has made us all bored with our home décor and interior, especially our bathrooms, which many of us usually ignore quite comfortably while renovating other parts of the home. If you have come to the point of giving your bathroom a complete makeover or a mini-one, then you must have a basic idea about the cost of different design decisions. The cost estimation helps us decide that either we should go for a complete change from scratch or a mini, but major updates like tapware would be enough for a terrific impact.

We have compiled some data about bathroom-ware products' key costs to better understand renovation either on a budget or luxury bathroom-ware.

Bathroom Estimate:

Living in New Zealand, a basic bathroom's revamp project can cost you around $20000.  The price variation depends on the area's size, the kind of fittings you're choosing, and the bathroom's overall design. The average cost can differ significantly depending on the material you select. Another important factor affecting the price is that if you're converting an area previously used for something else, into the bathroom, or just doing some transformations in the already made bathroom. In case of a complete room change, you will have to consider window, ventilation, plumbing, and waterproofing cost. But if you're in the process of renovating your old bathroom, then the cost of changing your tap-wares and tiles will be considered.

Another vital factor in a bathroom's refurbishment project is the cost of labor. You'll need to have a bathroom designer, plumber, electrician, water-proofer, tiler, plasterer, and painter. You can cut the cost by doing some of the work yourself; something simple like painting the walls can be easily learned through the internet, minimize the cost by doing such tasks yourself. But a thing to remember while cutting down on expenditures is that waterproofing, electricity work, and plumbing needs some regulations to check, so you'll have to hire a professional for these jobs.
